how did you find TB?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by thinking of you, Feb 23, 2004.

  1. I was wondering how so many people know about TalkBass? I found it by doing a google search for Bass Guitar pictures, and the TB logo came up as one of the first ones, so i clicked on it, and it led me to the store. Thus, I found Talkith Thy Bass.

    When I bought my bass guitar, the salesdude at the store told me to check out Harmony Central, so I did. I was looking at the bass links page, and TB was there. For the longest time, I just used TB for tabs, but after a while, I actually started using the forum.

    Heather, AKA LightRaven, sent me over here from her forum. She said I would like it better at TB. She was right, I do. :D

  5. I was doing a Google search on U2's Adam Clayton which also brought up the thread about him in TB's "Bassists" forum. So I had a look around what else is there... :)

    I believe that I found it looking for tabs also. :meh: But I am not positve.The only other way would have been google. The most important thing is that I did find it and it has guided me down the right path of playing bass. :bassist:

    I believe I was on Aaron's Carl Thompson page when I read a post by Resident Luthier Darrin Huff mentioning Talkbass, I checked it out, I think I posted once, then didn't return for about 3-4 months, then started posting regularly.

    My bass teacher told me about it. ( I'm not giving names...)

    I would look around the forums every day for about three months before I actually registered. :rolleyes:
